4.7 out of 5 stars
I use it on all my sites

The only way this could be better is, if this plugin hooks into a centralized service on the internet that takes note of the blocked IP addresses and attempts to either notify compromised computer owners, or keep a blacklist of the most commonly blocked IP addresses. But even as-is, this is one of the most useful security plugins out there. And it's free!

Unbelievably Good

This plugin works like a charm. It caught 97 attempted logins this morning alone.

Installed by Default

I install this plugin by default on all my sites. Works like a charm!

However, we all should remain aware of the potential for hacks described in at least one thorough 1-star review by Chltx. Check it out and be aware.

Will be really depressed if compatibility ceases.

I see that this plugin hasn't been updated in over 2 years, and that's fine, because it still works perfectly.

There are way too many plugins that try to do too much, what this one does, it does well, with purpose and simplicity and for that, I love it.

I really hope that upgrades and modifications to WordPress, which are inevitable, don't push this plugin into an incompatible state.

In earnest, stuff like this should be integrated into the WordPress core.

I'm so Happy I installed this Plugin!

Even though the plugin is compatible up to WordPress 3.3.2, it works perfectly with my blog which is running WP 4.4.1. Very effective plugin.

The best blocker plugin already made for wordpress!
